Hello guys,

This is my first post here and unfortunately it's with an issue.

It started last night during a 10 hour print: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sxryglbjkiq8eot/IMG_1632%20copy.jpg

As you can see, there are a few distorted layers and the piece broke in half when I removed it.

I re-calibrated the bed, tried a new print (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:265525/#files) and again the same problem as you can see below:

print speed: 50mm/s

layer height: 0.1 mm

fill: 15%

Any thoughts on this?

Thank you

    Thank you for you response.

    Now that I know the name of the issue I can start searching for solutions. As for the temperature - I'm using the standard temperature profile for PLA (from the printer).

    I've removed the white filament I was using and it seems there was a clog in the extruder - changing it cleaned it and I did a good print afterwards.

    I will look for a solution to have the spool/loose filament somewhere below the printer as I see it's a popular way to avoid underextrusions.

    Do different color filaments behave in different ways during printing? Matte versus translucent, white vs black ?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
